Pennsylvania Republicans are Demanding Arizona-Style Election Audit

Pennsylvania Republicans want officials to conduct an election audit similar to the one underway in Maricopa County, Arizona examining the 2020 presidential election. In Arizona, the Republican-led Senate has hired auditors to hand count 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County after Joe Biden narrowly won the state.

According to The Hill:

During a visit to Phoenix on Wednesday, three GOP Pennsylvania state lawmakers toured an audit site and met with Arizona Republican lawmakers to discuss issues with the elections, according to Arizona state Rep. Wendy Rogers, WSJ reported.

Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt (R) said on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday that the Arizona audit aime to “reach a partisan political conclusion.”

“I know how important audits are. But what is going on in Arizona is not an audit. It is funded by partisan political benefactors, it is directed by partisan political operatives to reach a partisan political conclusion, which is…not an audit,” Schmidt told Berman.

Schmidt added that its “completely reckless” that his state’s GOP lawmakers visited the auditing site, adding that he doesn’t know why legislators want to repeat what’s going in Arizona, citing what’s going on in Arizona is being led by people who don’t have any experience in election administration.

I live in Maricopa County. The false accusations by Democrats against the process and people performing the manual recounts makes me think that there is suspicious behavior that could be found in the election process. There are 9 live cameras watching the entire process – sunshine eradicates corruption. If the meticulous hand recount confirms the numbers reported on election day, then there is no problem. But the media bashing of this process indicates that there may be trouble in the Democrat paradise. We’ll see when the vote recount is published. If fraud is discovered, the media will cover for the Democrats but the evidence may be too much for the media to hide.

Democrats claiming that the audit taking place in Arizona is not an audit because it is a partisan effort. Give me a friggin’ break. IT IS AN AUDIT because the Arizona State Senate demanded it and it is the law! Democrats purposely resisted and chose not to participate knowing damn well they ran a fraudulent campaign and vote-rigging in Arizona, as they did the same thing in Georgia, Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. There is also no doubt that massive voter fraud took place in California which obviously affected both the House and Senate votes. The truth will come out and God willing those responsible will go the prison for their crimes against America and the American people!!

Sorry to say it was a RINO not an actual Democrat (semantic difference I understand) that said AZ wasn’t an audit.

Az is my state since high school and I say WHO CARES! I am also a CPA, BSA, programmer and an audit is an audit, is an audit. The way it is laid out and being conducted makes it a very valid audit with the correct checks and balances. And the governor in AZ wants to stop it but he cannot. He also wants to veto the legislation being drawn up from the results. My answer to that is, can anyone in AZ say RECALL?
>
Did ANOTHER Governor recall in AZ several years ago to another idiot and kicked him out. If anyone starts the petition this one in AZ to recall Ducey will happen real fast. I will drive hundreds of miles to sign his recall petition. I have never liked Ducey and only voted for him because he had the republican primary. Now we can recall the little McCain Stooge Rhino! Do it AZ, and we will sign to remove the traitor from the midst of a republican Maga state! He has ticked off everyone including fellow republicans in this state. Ducey’s days should end before his full second term is up in 2022 with the rejection of the legal voters in this state. And believe me enough will sign his recall petition even faster than CA did on Newcom the moron nephew of Old Nanc. Then we can haunt him to the new hole he has obviously already found! Traitor to even the kids in this state, SNAKE HE IS!

Seems like none of these complainers take into consideration that federal and state laws, which in either case must be changed by legislation, were in most cases changed by a Voter Official or mostly a Secretary of State.

In Pennsylvania they were changed by the state Supreme Court which had no right to change them. Most people don’t understand that that was what happened in the Bush v Gore case back in 2000. The various Florida courts kept changing election laws that have been voted on, passed, and signed by the governor into law.

With the Supreme Court did ultimately was that it declared a simple truth to be a fact. The truth is that if the American people are going to be able to trust elections, then the rules for these elections have to be etched in stone before the election. The rules cannot be changed for any reason even a pandemic. Except by the legislature not by Courts

Someone should explain to Schmidt that an “audit” is performed by “non-partisan” (disinterested/disconnected) individuals, employed by a “non-partisan, disinterested” firm of “accountants, or auditors”. This group of people does NOT attempt to “change” what is, merely “find and correct” mistakes/errors, so the end result IS the “true result”. The only ones who do NOT want the “true results” found, are those who “intentionally” (or stupidly) changed, or created fraudulent input and THAT’S A FACT!

I should have added that the people conducting the audit in Arizona, though they have NO experience in election administration, or control, have a LOT of experience in computer fraud, error and manipulation and at this point, that IS what is needed!

That is a distinct possibility, since we know and it’s been confirmed, that certain rinos “conspired with”, or chose to ignore what they knew the democommies were boldly doing, fully believing everyone else was too stupid to know the difference.

First of all, since when did Philly elect a Republican to any election. The closest person to a Republican that I can remember was a chief of police that did not mess around. He actually enforced the law and was not liked, because of it, Frank Risso.

Don’t you remember Biden said something about his “fraud ????” Whatever the sentence it sounded as if he knew fraud was taking place. Maybe he knew he was going to win so that is why he did not campaign much.

I’ll tell you what the deal is. They know that even if they threw out enough fraudulent votes to declare Trump the winner of the state, that it’s not going to change the outcome. Biden will remain president.

But here is the real danger for the Democrats. If enough votes that were Democrat votes are thrown out, that could mean that Kristen Sinema and Mark Kelly’s senate seats get thrown out. That would put the Republicans back in control of the Senate and Biden’s full agenda would be dead in the water. Make no mistake, there would likely be civil war over such a finding. The Democrats would never accept the findings of the audits and Chuck Schumer would say no matter what that Sinema and Kelley, have already been seated into the Senate and that that cannot be undone.

Any Democrat will try to discourage the investigations into the election fraud because they either know that the democrats were complicit in stealing that election by illegal procedures and misrepresentation of ballot counting OR they are just very NAIVE about the morals of their dishonest party members. Either way, more and more states are investigating their election tallies because there is a huge possibility that someone or some country has pulled a fast one by changing the actual votes for DJT to biddyboy Biden!

FYI: Someone should check the election of 2008 and 2012 because there is a high probability that those elections were rigged also! Come on now. Think about this. How’d a no name, unproductive Black representative with nothing successful or memorable about his position all of a sudden became President of the United States??? Maybe you need to ask George Soros about those two because Soros was grooming BHO to be president so he (Soros) could control him and manipulate his actions. Yes. THERE IS A SIMILARITY BETWEEN THE 2008, 2012 and 2020 Elections — fraud balloting can change everything! And another weak, pathetic man in office that can be easily manipulated! Deja vue!

Of course the dim wits know what they did illegally without the input of the state legislatures in all the cheater fraud voting. And now they fight to keep it in the dark with whatever lie of the moment slows an audit down. Be afraid of any valid audit if you have something to hide that will be clearly brought out for any judge and jury to see. Sic all the dim wits and their cheater helpers and level the law in this effort. This is massive voter fraud and the roulette voter machine owners and the ones who forced the fraud and then signed off on all of it have to be seriously scared out of their britches. False tabulations, verification and all. Let alone the not valid ballots, the false signatures, etc.. And in the end that still lets a lot of the fraud be dismissed because finding the double voters, etc.. is not gonna happen until all the polling stations in the states and across states can be pulled and tabulated to see who else voted more than once unless the morons voted twice in the same precinct. And I would bet there are many of that kind of idiot believing no votes would be checked. Oh well, cheating in your own nest is really an oxymoron.

And watch out Ducey, we in AZ are gonna want you in a recall like CA just had. You so deserve it you little McCain Stooge. Stabbing us all in the back and hurting the children of this state for whoever bribed you to impede this whole process. Chicken little is what you are and not a man at all. Weak and immature and slow mo in the learning curve. Recall for this governor is as important and soon as any lousy traitor should be served with all the heat included! Recall AZ Governor Ducey NOW!

Look, I could not stand Obama‘s policies. But the bottom line is that things were really screwed up in 2008 with the economy in the market crash etc. George W. Bush got the lions share of the blame. As a result the Republican party got the blame. It didn’t matter if John McCain was a war hero or not. With the state that the country was in no Republican was going to win that race.

Now, Mitt Romney Mike will have gotten screwed over in 2012. He definitely got hosed in that last debate that Candy “the Cow” Crowley moderated. But Romney also mailed it in because he thought he had it won.

“what’s going on in Arizona is being led by people who don’t have any experience in election administration.” What’s going is the people whom had experience in election administration have it so screwed up that someone other than them need to fix this to even be half believable. A county with no passwords…then who does have the passwords, it shouldn’t be dominion. Ballots counted more than once, machines that induce ballot errors 10x what’s allowable, ballots sent to adjudication for election officials to fill out or change as they see fit, broken chain of custody, broken ballot box seals, voter fraud, wireless cellular routers, mystery ballots dumped off at odd hours, under the table ballots counted after poll watchers told to go home. Any one of the above should trigger a forensic audit but all of the above and there is something that is wrong!

Dah and you do know better Steve?

The guy leading the audit was Hobbs in the same capacity before she took the job. Are you even suggesting he does not understand the process?

No one has done a forensic audit of a state or county like this. But as a retired CPA BSA programmer, this one is being done correctly. And all of it is auditable as suddenly all the missing items were finally given to the audit team. And Hobbs is already back peddling, maybe there was fraud though she said there was none prior to the handover of all evidence requested by the audit team up front through a judge!

  1. I believe the cross checks and balances are being done and will show the level of fraud.
  2. And it was not a bunch of idiots who knew not what they did!
  3. It will not catch all the fraud as double votes, etc. will not be compared to the one county against every county but enough will be caught.
  4. Now via the machines data bases, the counts and the ballots per the boxes and those signatures per the person loading the boxes will be compared.
  5. And versus what was signed off on by the incompetents you claim who really do not have the luxury of that argument you made for them will be held accountable for those discrepancies in the boxes versus the talley sheets on each box with their signatures and what the machine tallies provide.
  6. And one must not forget the infamous hiccups and internet connections of the roulette voting machines.
  7. Then there is the veracity of the ballots in person and those mailed out. Watermarks first to establish valid per location or delivery method. I expect to see a lot in the trash bin at this point.
  8. Then comes signatures to validate and more in the trash bin here as well.
  9. And at the frontend of all of it is the number of registered legal voters and we already know more ballots were signed and counted than were registered. Hum? What? A late night registration process no one knew about? Heard the late night poll deliveries in 2018 when Sinema was running behind McSalley. Ducey let that slide for some odd reason but now we understand why he did that!

I know this process, it is not complicated Steve. And I know when I witness fraud in action. Been wanting this vote challenge since 2016 when McCain won when he should have lost. Now we know how it was done in 2018 as well but I was already on this whole late night balancing of votes to make up for the shortfall the dim wits were losing with. And always just enough to tip the vote for say McCain or Sinema to win.
>
And it all will definitely provide enough evidence and accountability by those incompetents who signed off on and accepted responsibility for their part in the election fraud. And this will be the first of many audits in other states.
>
And Steve as an auditor often the guilty deliberately do NOT do things right. Making a big mess is a tried and failed routine of the guilty. And a good auditor can handle it, trust one who has untied many messes. The evidence is always there even when the guilty resort to total destruction in some of the audits I have handled.

No excuses like incompetent will save the bunch who perpetrated this crime on the voters. If we discover their names they should move to avoid being black listed by the conservatives of this state, you know the nuts like all of the MAGA people like me.

Well, it sounds like Schmidt is working for the other team. You Republicans in the Ketstone State had better wake up, or you’re going to be “woke out” by your own people.

It does sound like the Democrat Party is pulling out ALL the stops to keep the gross election fraud from being revealed. They are even paying members of the other team to do their dirty work for them. And since typical modern Republicans have no since of honor or loyalty, there are plenty there for the Democrats to use.

If the fraud is revealed in enough states to show even the Democrat voters that the election was crooked, what then? Will Joe Biden be dragged out of the White House by his hair (whatever he has left) by the federal marshals and the secret service? And how many true Americans would like to see that happen?

I live in Arizona and when my wife and I went to our voting station to vote a car pulled up and boxes of ballots were taken out of the trunk and put with the ballots that were being filled out by the people who were there voting. I asked what was going on and where did the ballots come from but no one there could give me any answers.

I am 100% convinced that the election in Arizona was fraudulent and Donald Trump is the President of the United States. The Democrat Party is full of liars and cheaters. At least that is the way it is here in Arizona.

[“I know how important audits are. But what is going on in Arizona is not an audit. It is funded by partisan political benefactors, it is directed by partisan political operatives to reach a partisan political conclusion, which is…not an audit,” Schmidt told Berman.]

I don’t believe partisanship is going to be in any of the results of the Arizona Maricopa County voting audit, but even if there were, it is still 100% better than having the same people do the audit, that committed the voter fraud in the first place, as was done in Pennsylvania where any audits may have been conducted.

It’s impossible to get true and honest audits, when the people who committed the voter fraud, are the same people doing the audit. If massive voter fraud is found, with very large numbers of ballot and tabulation fraud, then the few people who conducted the collecting of votes, and tabulation of those votes, will have to be part of the voter fraud, just by the huge amount of fraud found in the precincts that those fraudulently high numbers are found.

Those few people need to be prosecuted, or at least prevented from ever again being allowed to participate in any election, anyplace in the USA.
